This Extremely Rare Doxa Doctors Chronograph Caduceus ~ Aesculapius Backed 1948 Watch is one seriously rare watch!


If you have been waiting for “something special”  to come along   ~  well this may well be it!
As this 1948 Doxa is certainly a Special watch!!

Maker to some of the most stylish and innovative watches of the 20thC ,  Doxa   ~   This handsome watch is among the rarest of all Doxa made and all vintage Doctors chronograph watches of the period in general !!

There are generally three separate styles of “Doctors watches”  during the 1920’s to 1940’s.
1} Being the “two dial” Tank shape versions.
2} Round dial millisecond markings with long seconds sweep
3} Chronographs or regulator chronographs with pulsation meters {plus some ‘avant garde’ versions}.

This Doxa is among the most accurate genuine Doctors watches made at that point in time!

One thing that you will truly struggle to find ,  anywhere ,  is a 1940’s chronograph by a leading company {at the time of manufacture} in good original condition with a Caduceus or Aesculapius impressed to the case back!

Screaming at all & sundry that this handsome watch was made for a medical doctor ,  such a beautiful design it is difficult to understand why it was not used more often on real vintage Doctor’s watches!

The beautiful design is correctly called a Caduceus & incorrectly associated with the medical profession!

What ,  I here some say!?
It has been falsely associated with the medical profession by none other than the country that simply loves “alternative facts” & has “world war 3 in a suit”  running the show.
Poor citizens!

The correct symbol that represents the medical profession is the “staff of Aesculapius   or  Rod of Aesculapius”.  Which is one snake coiled around a rod or ‘staff’ and not the two that has snaked it’s way into the 21stC   ‘alternate facts’ list.   {couldn’t help that one}
Not that it matters at all yet it may save someone an email to explain it to me! lol.
Apparently only around 5% of Doctors are aware of that ,  so it doesn’t matter to watch collectors..

This Extremely Rare Doxa Doctors Chronograph Caduceus ~ Aesculapius Backed 1948 Watch does matter though.
The case is as good as Or better than any I can recall seeing on a 1940’s Chronograph!
